this is us: earliest fossils of our species found in morocco


new york (ap) — how long has our species been around? new fossils from morocco push the evidence back by about 100,000 years.the bones, about 300,000 years old, were unearthed thousands of miles from the previous record-holder, found in fossil-rich eastern africa. the new discovery reveals people from an early stage of our species’ evolution, with a mix of modern and more primitive traits.“they are not just like us,” said jean-jacques hublin, one of the scientists reporting the find. but they had “basically the face you could meet on the train in new york.”coupled with other evidence, the moroccan fossils suggest that homo sapiens may have reached its modern-day form in more than one place within africa, said hublin, of the max planck institute for evolutionary anthropology in leipzig, ger

'first of our kind' found in morocco


media playback is unsupported on your devicemedia captionthe shape of a jebel irhoud skull (l) is almost identical to ours (r)the idea that modern people evolved in a single "cradle of humanity" in east africa some 200,000 years ago is no longer tenable, new research suggests. fossils of five early humans have been found in north africa that show homo sapiens emerged at least 100,000 years earlier than previously recognised. it suggests that our species evolved all across the continent, the scientists involved say. their work is published in the journal nature.prof jean-jacques hublin, of the max planck institute for evolutionary anthropology in leipzig, germany, told me that the discovery would "rewrite the text books" about our emergence as a species. "it is not the story of it happening






moroccan fossils shake up understanding of human origins


the understanding of human origins was turned on its head on wednesday with the announcement of the discovery of fossils unearthed on a moroccan hillside that are about 100,000 years older than any other known remains of our species, homo sapiens.scientists determined that skulls, limb bones and teeth representing at least five individuals were about 300,000 years old, a blockbuster discovery in the field of anthropology.the antiquity of the fossils was startling – a “big wow,” as one of the researchers called it. but their discovery in north africa, not east or even sub-saharan africa, also defied expectations. and the skulls, with faces and teeth matching people today but with archaic and elongated braincases, showed our brain needed more time to evolve its current form.“this material re

anthropologists have long sought to pin down the exact location of the proverbial “garden of eden” — the region of our planet where the earliest homo sapiens emerged.over the last two decades, a combination of genetic evidence and data from the fossil record led scientists to conclude that the first members of our species evolved in eastern africa about 200,000 years ago.but a new discovery suggests a more complex narrative for the origin of humans.in a pair of papers published wednesday in nature, an international team of researchers describe 22 human fossils from northwest morocco that are approximately 300,000 years old.according to the authors, it is the earliest evidence of homo sapiens ever discovered — by a long shot.the unexpected location of the find, coupled with previous discove

oldest homo sapiens fossils discovered in morocco with a mixture of modern and p


bones found in a cave in morocco add 100,000 years to the history of modern human fossils. these bones are from “early anatomically modern” humans – our own species, homo sapiens, with a mixture of modern and primitive traits, an international team of anthropologists, paleontologists and evolutionary scientists report in a pair of papers published wednesday in the journal nature.despite their primitive features, these ancient people could blend in with a modern crowd, study author jean-jacques hublin of the max planck institute for evolutionary anthropology in leipzig, germany, said in a news briefing tuesday – particularly, he added, if hats covered their somewhat oddly shaped heads.the oldest homo sapiens bones known date to about 200,000 years ago, but the new analysis shows these bones
